Hong Trinh, trained by her father who was a master tailor in Vietnam, demonstrates her 20-plus years of experience with the deft strokes of her sewing needle. Trinh and her team of tailors can mend slacks made un-wearable by growth spurts or exposure to enlargement lasers by hemming the pant legs, which remedies length issues by sewing folded cloth onto itself while still maintaining the original, professionally sewn look. They can also employ their garment expertise to replace broken zippers ($15), take in suit blazer sleeves ($30), adjust pant waistlines ($15), and disable self-destruct devices in vintage spy wear. Hong’s Custom Tailor staffers also offer custom embroidery and per-project services upon request.
